Smiths Property Experts are favoured with instruction to market a fine example of a detached Edwardian family home situated on Arlington Drive in Mapperley Park, which is arguably one of Nottingham’s most desirable residential locations. Redlands has not been offered to the open market for over 50 years. The property sits on a gated and secluded plot extending to circa 0.5 of an acre and is surrounded by beautifully manicured wrap-around gardens
This beautiful family home is in a conservation area and has been lovingly maintained by the current owners to an exacting standard. The house was built in 1910 and thoughtfully extended around 2000, resulting in a total floor area of almost 4,300 square feet, which includes garaging. The interiors beautifully blend Edwardian/Arts and Crafts period features with modern living spaces, providing a warm and inviting family home.
The main house is presented in turnkey condition and boasts generous room sizes, a large hallway and landing, and high ceilings as one would expect from a home of this period. Expect to find Edwardian features including operational open fires, beautiful bay windows, original joinery, and beautiful plasterwork throughout.
The living space is laid across three floors and affords gas central heating. There are six double bedrooms, two bathroom suites, and a great deal of storage space. There are five reception areas on the ground floor, including the drawing room, sitting room, dining room, conservatory, and modern kitchen/diner. There is also a downstairs WC and utility room. Accessed from the main entrance hall are substantial cellars with standing headspace (6’0) that are currently in use as stores and a workshop.
Of particular note is the ‘turret’ to the left-hand front corner of the main house. It is 8’0 in diameter and provides 270-degree East to West window seating in both the main drawing room and principal bedroom.
Gardens and Grounds
The property boasts a private walled plot, with an electric wrought iron gated entrance. There is a private driveway leading up the right-hand side of the grounds, with a large block paved parking area to the rear and two detached garages. Subject to the necessary planning consents the double garage would make excellent small business, annexe, or ancillary living accommodation.
To the front are manicured gardens with a low-tiered lawn and fully stocked borders providing year-round interest and wonderful topiary. The main house is elevated and to the front is a ‘morning terrace’ with direct access from the drawing room and wonderful views across the varied tree canopy.
To the rear are a continuation of the formal gardens, with central lawns bordered by mature borders and beautiful varieties of trees. The rear gardens afford all afternoon sun and exceptional privacy. A gated ‘secret’ garden lies to the very rear of the plot, used by the current owners as a working garden and with the inclusion of a substantial greenhouse.
